UVa Thrower Mihaljevic Named ACC Men's Freshman of the Year

Virginia first-year Filip Mihaljevic was named the ACC Outdoor Track and Field Men’s Freshman of the Year on Friday.

Mihaljevic became the first Virginia male athlete to compete in two individual events at the same NCAA Outdoor Championship, qualifying in the shot put and discus. He earned top-eight finishes to earn first-team All-America honors in both events. He set a school record of 64-2.25 to earn a seventh place finish in the shot put. In the discus, he finished eighth with a throw of 193-1.

At the ACC Outdoor Track and Field Championships in April, Mihaljevic was the conference champion in the discus and finished third in the shot put. He finished his rookie season with the school record in the shot put and the second-best mark in school history in the discus.
